Hi all

The CSS3 selectors module says in section 7:

   "Only one pseudo-element may appear per selector, and if present
    it must appear after the sequence of simple selectors that
    represents the subjects of the selector. A future version of
    this specification may allow multiple pesudo-elements per
    selector."

This doesn't allow the new tricks specified in the Generated Content  
module, eg

   p::outside::before

I'd suggest rewording to something like:

   "Pseudo-elements must appear after the sequence of simple
    selectors that represent the subject of the selector."

Cheers... Mike
